Sean Kilpatrick, who averaged 13.8 points per game in 23 games last season, highlights the Nets’ summer league roster, which was announced by the team on Monday afternoon.

Kilpatrick, a shooting guard, was averaging a D-League-leading 26.4 points with Delaware on Feb. 28 when new Nets general manager Sean Marks signed him.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, a guard/forward, played in only 29 games, including 17 starts, as a rookie last season due to ankle surgery in December. He averaged 5.9 points and 5.3 rebounds last season. He joins Kilpatrick on the summer league roster.

Forward Chris McCullough and center Henry Sims are also on the summer league roster. McCullough tore his ACL while at Syracuse and missed the first 50 games of his rookie season. He returned and played in 24 games for the Nets last season, including four starts. He averaged 4.7 points and 2.8 rebounds. Sims played in 14 games for the Nets last season, including four starts, and averaged 6.5 points and 5.1 rebounds.

Isaiah Whitehead, a guard from Seton Hall, was selected by the Utah Jazz in the second round of last month’s draft and traded to the Nets. Whitehead will be on the Nets’ summer league team, as well as Yogi Ferrell, an undrafted guard out of Indiana.

New Nets coach Kenny Atkinson, a Long Island native, will coach the summer league team, which will participate in the Las Vegas summer league. The Nets play their first game on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. ET against the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Thomas & Mack Center.
